Hello everyone, 

So glad to be at the right place with right people. Thanks Admins (shoutout)

I am planning to apply for D7 from Saudi arabia. Here VFS does not take applications for Type-D Visa for Portugal so they directed me toward the embassy of Portugal in Riyadh city. I am yet to receive a reply from them to my email, they have also not responded to my calls. I needed to check the procedure and document checklist to apply the visa.

On the other hand, I am trying to get in contact with Ei Migrante, called there office twice, i was asked to send email with details to Geral @ eimgrante which i did and i am waiting for them to notice me from the pile of emails 😀 (yup i am down here) i would really love to get there services because i have heard a lot of good things about them. lets see and hope for the best.

Meanwhile, if any one of you guys knows the procedure to apply from Saudi Arabia, please help me out.

@waqasm. There is a list of requirements on the consulate's website. They are pretty much the same as any other consulate around the world. What I've learned,  it always boils down to how strict/lenient they are in terms of funds, accommodations etc.  I haven't sent an application yet, as we do not intend to relocate until early 2022.  I have been slowly crossing the list and will be sending in requirements in a couple of months. Would be nice if we can compare notes or better yet, some nice fellow in this forum can give us both some pointers. Good luck.

@egs Thanks very much for your input. I am also in @waqasm situation, I need to apply through the Saudi Embassy, but I sent an email since 2 days ago and no reply yet. At this point do you know how long they take to reply and how long do they take for giving a response about the Visa? Do I need to travel to Saudi ? Or can it be done sending the passport and documents through DHL? Thanks very much in advance 👍 😀

@jcc I have started gathering all requirements but have not turned in my application yet. From my experience, embassy replied back to my emails after 2-3 days. Also from what I know, you will be asked to courier your passports once/if your D7 is approved.

@egs Thanks very much for your reply, I just saw it. I am also gathering the docs, but I would like to know if it is required to travel to Saudi Arabia, or there is a possibility to do the process by sending all the required documents by courier. I wrote to ( sconsular.riade@mne.pt ) but they didn’t reply to my email, I know VFS does not process long terms visas in Saudi Arabia, it has to be done directly with the Emabassy. Thanks very much again 😃
